Lawyers For The Victims Of Dog Attacks
In both Ohio and Kentucky, owners have strict liability when their dogs bite someone. There is no second chance. When a dog bites, even if it is that dog’s first bite, the owner is responsible. If you were bitten by a dog, you need experienced legal counsel.
Many people are hesitant to report a dog bite or make a claim for the injuries. But the injuries are often serious – facial scarring, nerve damage, infection, psychological damage – and require careful and often extensive medical and psychological treatment. If you have questions about dog bites and dog bite liability, contact the personal injury attorneys at the Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima law firm. We have five offices throughout the Cincinnati metro in southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky.
Dog Bite Injuries Are Usually Covered By Homeowners Insurance
If you were an invited guest in a friend’s home and if the dog bit your child, you should make a premises liability claim. That is why the homeowner has insurance. Insurance is how we meet our obligations to others if we cause injury.
The personal injury lawyers at our law firm are available to talk to you about your rights in a consultation if you or a loved one was the victim of a dog bite. Whether it was a small puppy or a large dog, you have a right to compensation. If you were a passerby, a guest in the home, a mail carrier or delivery person, or a worker in the home, you have the right to compensation.
